SAN DIEGO (CNS) - No longer a member of the hated Denver Broncos, NFL quarterback Tim Tebow will appear at Qualcomm Stadium Sunday under friendlier circumstances -- a Father's Day event in conjunction with Shadow Mountain Community Church.
Tebow, a devout Christian, will discuss his life and his role as a father, along with the megachurch's the Rev. David Jeremiah, at a free public event called "Father's Day 2012 -- Encouraging Men to Live, Love and Lead."
The University of Florida alumnus played two seasons for Denver, an AFC West rival of the Chargers. Then, the Broncos got quarterback Peyton Manning, an assured Hall of Famer, so Tebow moved on to the New York Jets. He'll begin his training with his new team next month.
Event organizers say Tebow, the son of Baptist missionaries to The Philippines, will share his life story.
Jeremiah describes him as "the real deal" as an athlete, capable of taking over a game.
"But far more importantly, at the age of 24, he is the kind of man any young boy would do well to emulate," Jeremiah said.
In November, Tebow rallied the Broncos to a 16-13 overtime victory over the Chargers, which ultimately kept the home team from reaching the playoffs.
